Last Sunday, the 30th of June, the Interact club of Port Nicholson volunteered at Zealandia. The group, about 15 of us, spent three hours in the beautiful park learning about the conservation work they do to support New Zealand native plants and birds. After a quick and slightly challenging walk up to our site the team excitedly got to work cutting down blackberry bushes. We used "Cut and Paste" a special paste developed to stop the blackberry regrowing and which will give the native plants that will be planted there soon more room to grow. It was great exercise and despite the cold and slightly drizzly weather the day was a roaring success.
